On Demand: Econ Camp Session 3 – The Federal Reserve’s New Monetary Policy Tools

Originally presented: Oct. 25, 2021

Session Description:

Do you think that the buying and selling of U.S. bonds is still the main monetary policy tool of the Federal Reserve?  Think again!  Join us for this special session to learn about the new methods by which the Fed conducts monetary policy, as well as free resources to teach your students.  Materials are for high school and AP students, but teachers of all grade levels are welcome.
